Happy new year, y'all! I simplified the thread title a bit this year - hope that's okay with you guys. If not, call the mods!

Let's start 2020 off right with this banger from late November:

Sarkodie - Oofeetsɔ ft. Prince Bright [Buk Bak]

That’s what you get for dragging your feet! Glad there’s a new thread tho.

If I can make one general request to everyone posting here: please add song info when you’re posting a YouTube or any other link. This not only makes it easier to search the thread, but also so many of these links go dead, often sooner than later, especially when they’re not the “official” ones (I mean, just have a look at last year’s thread).

Hope to be posting some stuff soon (there’s plenty!), if I can get myself in the right mindset.

Okay, here goes:

longneck, that Sarkodie x Prince Bright track is a banger indeed. Talk about a pair of old hands... Buk Bak, the group Prince Bright started out in, made an azonto classic in 2012 with “Kolom”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPyqZ5Dub-Q
(and I only just now found out
that they were veterans even then.

breastcrawl, Thursday, 9 January 2020 16:51 (eight months ago) link

But back to the here and now: Give me a single reason why there wouldn’t be a new Nini album in 2020:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xl36uos9Wrc
Niniola • Omo Rapala

Reminder: This song wasn’t nominated for the EOY, but “Boda Sodiq” was, so you can vote🔶 for that one!

breastcrawl, Thursday, 9 January 2020 16:52 (eight months ago) link

Califor...naija Love:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVte8a_2q80
Davido ft. WurlD, Naira Marley & Zlatan • Sweet in the Middle

Reminder: You can vote🔶 for the album it’s from in the EOY (as well as for the track “Disturbance” - too bad “Risky” wasn’t nominated).
Love how big African artists can now make albums that appeal both to their home market and the world at large, mainly because, unlike before, r&b/rap/urban(o) is more than ready to meet Afropop halfway.
I’m linking the Pitchfork review ufo mentioned in the 2019 thread because it’s a very good piece. Wish there was more writing on Afropop like this.

breastcrawl, Thursday, 9 January 2020 16:56 (eight months ago) link

More Naija: Fireboy DML is making good on the promise of “Jealous” (a song you should definitely vote🔶 for in the EOY). Kinda crazy, but his album Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps is handsomely outstreaming both the Davido and the Starboy EP. And it’s only right, this is perfect Naija pop. The new video is for “Scatter”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtbwTgY3AIk

“Vibration” is the other big track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEV1awtNdOs

...but you should also definitely listen to “Gbas Gbos” (and by then you might want to vote🔶 for the album in the EOY - it’s been nominated, so go right ahead!)

breastcrawl, Thursday, 9 January 2020 17:00 (eight months ago) link

Will vote

breastcrawl, Thursday, 9 January 2020 18:58 (eight months ago) link

"Jealous" is a strong contender for my #1 slot and I've never heard the album! Will have to rectify asap

rob, Thursday, 9 January 2020 21:17 (eight months ago) link

It’s only been out for six weeks or so. I wasn’t too crazy about the follow-up singles to “Jealous”, so my expectations weren’t particularly high, but the album blew me away - and like I said, it’s not just me: besides being the #1 album in Nigeria, it’s also #1 in Ghana and Uganda, which is quite extraordinary for a rookie like him.

breastcrawl, Thursday, 9 January 2020 22:14 (eight months ago) link

Breastcrawl,do you (or someone else) think you could make a playlist of all the nom'd thread related tracks? As I think I mentioned I didn't have the time to nom anything this year and need to catch up on all of your faves.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 09:39 (eight months ago) link

I have an overall South African playlist in the works, and I can make a rest-of-Africa tracks one too. Watch this space. Later today okay?

breastcrawl, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 10:33 (eight months ago) link

yay! (okay!)

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 12:10 (eight months ago) link

So, I made a playlist with all the nominated SOUTH AFRICAN tracks and albums (including two tracks by non-SA artists with significant input by SA artists/producers: “That’s For Me” and “My Power”).

First the 36** nominated tracks, from “Sondela” to “John Cena”, and after that the 9 nominated albums, from Sho Madjozi down to Tresor, where we come full circle. I arranged both tracks and albums in an approximation of stylistic order.

Here’s the playlist:
ILM 2019 EOY🇿🇦SOUTH AFRICA

**Missing is Heavy K ft. Moonchild Sanelly’s “Yebo Mama”, which is not on Spotify. This is the video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmdn52afm2U

(...and a note regarding Kwiish SA’s “Iskhathi”: The original vocal version that I love so much seems to have disappeared completely (I think there was a rights issue). The “Vocal Version” that is on Spotify (and this playlist) is no longer the original vocal version with, you know, actual vocals. There is a video version with re-recorded vocals by Vukani, but it’s not nearly as good.)

breastcrawl, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 21:14 (eight months ago) link

And as promised, I also made a playlist with the nominated [non-South African] AFROPOP tracks, and I threw in the albums as well. Again, it’s tracks first, albums second, 51 tracks and 19 albums to be precise.

It’s “pop” in the broadest sense: My focus was on the stuff that’s featured on this thread but I also included more leftfield stuff: DJ Nigga Fix, Hama and the four (!) Nyege Nyege Tapes albums that were nominated, and music that’s more within the remit of the Global Outernational thread, by KOKOKO!, Blick Bassy, Salif Keita, and Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba. Plus I included an exclusive Afropop cut of The Lion King: The Gift. And yeah, I basically excluded Afrodiasporic stuff.

Ultimately, it’s all a bit arbitrary obviously, and I might have missed some things, but whatever. So skip away and enjoy!

That playlist in full:
ILM 2019 EOY🔶AFROPOP NOMS

breastcrawl, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 21:47 (eight months ago) link

Apologies to DJ Nigga Fox for the typo. Here’s his nominated track “Vício” to make up for it:

You’re welcome, guys. Glad you appreciate it!

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 15 January 2020 11:01 (eight months ago) link

listening to the Fireboy album now and would recommend anyone doing likewise to skip the opening track which is, IMO, just on the wrong side of corny. Also this way you start with Vibration

rob, Thursday, 16 January 2020 15:01 (eight months ago) link

Good tip, but... (how) did you like the album?

breastcrawl, Thursday, 16 January 2020 21:05 (eight months ago) link

I didn't get all the way to the end but I liked what I heard. It's very mellow; no surprise there, but it kind of washed over me. I will probably give it another chance soon I think

This is exactly what I want to hear right now:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asuw9E1CY3U

Diamond Platnumz ft. Teni • Sound

breastcrawl, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 22:19 (seven months ago) link

longneck, are you familiar with this track (and the EP its from)?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5ShVeGKOLY
Alpha P • Paloma

He’s not just any old Rema copycat, these two go way back (and he was the singer, Rema the rapper!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KewSzDxZzdo

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 29 January 2020 10:21 (seven months ago) link

So... this is certainly interesting. Never heard of him before but the similarities are striking, yes,

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Wednesday, 29 January 2020 10:54 (seven months ago) link

So basically Rema jacked his partner's style, huh? lol. I really like Paloma though. Thanks, breastcrawl!

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Wednesday, 29 January 2020 11:04 (seven months ago) link

maybe he’s jacking Rema back for jacking him first? I’m not sure, in that 2015 clip Alpha sounds more like early Wizkid.

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 29 January 2020 21:51 (seven months ago) link

But anyway, there it is: the first attempt known to man at NaijaPiano:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT9GvDEnprI
Adekunle Gold x DJ Tunez • Kelegbe Megbe (Remix)

(you may know the original from last year’s thread - or from the EOY noms playlist)

We’re not exactly at Kabza level here yet, the vocal is buried too much in the mix for starters, but I’ve been waiting for this to happen and God knows how Naija pop might be sounding in a year’s time. Remember what Uhuru-wave and gqom>shagqom shaku did for Naija pop?

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 29 January 2020 21:52 (seven months ago) link

Yeah I heard and dismissed it, lol. The original version is awesome though.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Wednesday, 29 January 2020 21:58 (seven months ago) link

I appreciate the effort much more than the outcome. Blissed out is not an easy sound to achieve.

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 29 January 2020 22:05 (seven months ago) link

can't listen to that right now but gonna take it as retroactive vindication of my saying "Kelegbe Megbe" sounded like the Nigerian wing of the House of Sun El

dubious self-otms aside: yesss, I am ready for blissed out naija!

rob, Wednesday, 29 January 2020 22:14 (seven months ago) link

It’s not that it’s bad - I just prefer remixes that improve on the original tune. And this particular one was already perfect.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Wednesday, 29 January 2020 22:22 (seven months ago) link

xp

fucking hell, you’re right, I remember! I guess it was destined to have this role in NaijaPiano history. Check out this (condensed) sequence from last year’s thread:

Can’t wait to hear what NaijaPiano is going to sound like.

Digging the new Adekunle Gold, “Kelegbe Megbe (Know Your Level)”:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MucSft25l6I
― breastcrawl, maandag 1 juli 2019 23:32

Playing catch-up this morning. That Adekunle Gold track "Know Your Level" is really good--great to see it as I haven't enjoyed much he's done in a long time. It would fit nicely in the Nigerian wing of the House of Sun-El
― rob, donderdag 11 juli 2019 15:39

That’s a connection I would never have made! Not sure I can hear it like that though, it feels more of a piece with the Burna stuff to me.
― breastcrawl, donderdag 11 juli 2019 18:20

Yeah it's not like a huge break from other naija stuff or anything, but Gold is such a gentle presence (compared to someone like Burna) and, especially, the little break at 2:00 gives me some of the same feeling as...whatever we'd call that Sun-El microgenre. If that moment was stretched out I think it would connect even more strongly.

rob, Saturday, 1 February 2020 18:55 (seven months ago) link

Oh wow, damn that’s good! Killertunes continuing down the “Doyin” trail (another song that was way too short btw). Probably my favourite Naija single of the year so far.
Tekno must be jealous - and I’m not just saying that because of the “kpalanga” connection.

The new Adekunle Gold album, Afro Pop, Vol. 1, is a much more straightforward and concise affair (just 29 minutes against Fireboy and Burna’s 50). It’s mostly good (altho the lyrics can be a bit clunky at times), but it doesn’t make good on the promise of those great singles he released from “Kelegbe Megbe” onwards. “Okay” is the clear highlight of the new tracks.

Fireboy DML has cited Jon Bellion, Passenger and Wande Coal as his key contemporary influences.[3]

The first half of Celia is superb, rest is good to very good as well. Best of the current batch of big shot Naija albums so far, by far. Made in Lagos, you’re damn right!

The tracks Nigerians are listening to the most when they’re not listening to Burna:

This one is nice, if a bit generic. I hear talk of TikTok, might explain its popularity:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65O_4LXRyoc
Olakira • In My Maserati

The next song makes liberal use of Brymo’s classic hook for Ice Prince’s “Oleku”, which was huge when I started discovering Afropop. It’s nice to be able to feel your own sense of history with this music. It also continues Mayorkun’s hot streak in 2020:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yH5zhQgXPY
Jamopyper ft. Mayorkun • If No Be You

Also DJ Tunez’s “Pami” with Wizzy, Adekunle & Omah Lay (see upthread), and all things Omah in general, of course.

Stadic x Jonny Blaze ft. Niniola • Sibe
